Kindergarten

2023-24 Kindergarten

Registration for the 2023-24 school year opens at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2023

Hello and welcome to Brentwood Elementary!

To register for kindergarten in the 2023-24 school year, your child must be five years old on or before Dec. 31, 2023.

Starting school is an exciting time, for both children and parents. Although exciting, it can also be daunting if you don’t have the information you need. To help, Elk Island Public Schools has put together an online toolkit to make the transition as smooth as possible for families.

Special Events

Throughout the year the Brentwood Program provides students with special learning opportunities including:

  • Muffins with Mom

Field Trips

Focus on Family

At Brentwood, we welcome all family members into the classroom on a daily basis and for our many special events celebrating family throughout the year.

The Kindergarten agendas enhance the partnership between parents and teachers and strengthen the Home-School connection.

Progress reports, parent/teacher interviews and student-led interviews all help to keep parents informed and involved in their child's education.

We encourage families to learn together through our homework assignments sent home once a month and our L.I.F.T (Literacy is a Family Thing) program that promotes literacy at home.
